Could Seif al-Islam el-Qaddafi take control from his father?

The New York Times is reporting that a  plan is being passed around the Qaddafi government where his son Seif al-Islam Qaddafi could replace his 68 year old father.  A year ago Seif made headlines by saying that he was not interested in running the country, which disappointed those who noted his encouragement of liberal policies, including an emphasis on environmentalism.  However, the world’s impression of Seif changed when he gave a harsh speech condemning protesters at the start of the current conflict.  It is not yet clear whether or not Muammar supports the succession.  Seif does not represent a changing of leadership such that the rebels and the allies should be satisfied with the new leader, but the pragmatic allies might see this as an opportunity to withdraw from the conflict.
